Endless dunes on the day’s programme


Sand and dunes await the competitors at the start of the 448-km sixth special. Though navigational skills will again play a decisive role in the outcome of this special, the riders’ and drivers’ physical capacities will also be sorely tested.



They will have to tackle the endless sea of dunes while trying to lose as little time as possible. This stage precedes the rest day, which some competitors will welcome with open arms…




 Al-Attiyah or Peterhansel?



Giniel De Villiers reacquainted himself with victory yesterday, bit it was the battle between Nasser Al-Attiyah and Stéphane Peterhansel that captured the attention. This titanic duel swung in favour of the Frenchman who gained two additional minutes over his Qatari rival.



It may not seem much on paper, but with such a small gap in the general standings after five stages (only six minutes separate Peterhansel from Al-Attiyah), the slightest second could prove to be decisive at the end of the rally.




Kevin Benavides gave a clear display of his good nose for navigation yesterday by avoiding the stage’s pitfalls. Despite a crash and a broken nose, the HRC rider has climbed to the top of the general standings.


However, with six riders less than ten minutes behind him, it is all still to play for before the rest day, something which Ricky Brabec, Joan Barreda, Pablo Quintanilla or also Sam Sunderland will have surely understood!





Cavigliasso leads the pack



In the absence of title holder Ignacio Casale, who is taking part in the truck category, Nicolás Cavigliasso firmly intends to regain the title he won in 2019. However, the general standings in the quad race is far from done and dusted yet, with Nicolás Cavigliasso, Manuel Andújar, Alexandre Giroud and Giovanni Enrico all within the same hour.
